THE UNION government has allotted over K4.6million for a project to construct 108 school buildings across Mon State this fiscal year, according to the state’s education office.
The local government is currently in the process of scrutinising bids to choose the winners of the contract to build the schools as quickly as possible, said U Myo Tin Aung, Mon State Education Officer.
Action will be taken against the tender winning companies that fail to follow the construction agreement, said Daw Cho Cho Myat Aung, deputy director of finance department under the Education Department.
The project is planned to begin after the rainy season and is slated to be completed in March, she added.
When the project is completed, 30 pre-schools, 47 primary schools, 12 middle schools and 13 high schools as well as five laboratory rooms will be added to the state.
To provide better education services, the township general administration department, the construction department and relevant bodies are carrying out the construction as well as the renovation of school buildings. — Myitmakha News Agency
